Scenes From the Suburbs is a 30 minute long short film companion piece to Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs” music video co-written by Jonze and Win and Will Butler. The original “Suburbs” video followed a group of kids in a weird military patrolled suburban neighborhood, and this film “expands the music video into a film without abandoning the structure of a clip. The future has become reality. And the threat lies in the proximity of the military. Memories of a past summer.”
The film will screen four times this month at the Berlin International Film Festival, where it is in competition in the “Short” category. Hopefully the film will make its way to us fans shortly thereafter.
Here is the “Suburbs” video to remind you of what we are talking about. Enjoy.
